This is the fourth course in the QABA pre-approved QBA series. This course will cover the additional 5 hours of Antecedent Interventions, 30 hours of Skill Acquisition Programming, and 10 hours of Behavior Reduction Interventions required under the QABA 2022 Competency Standards and Coursework Requirements.
This is the Four course of the QABA Pre-approved QBA six course sequence. Students will be able to identify the ultimate outcomes for the person or persons involved, identify sequential or concurrent intermediate outcomes, identify the behavior or behaviors targeted for change in observable and measurable terms, and establish positive interpersonal relationships using behavior change procedures. Students will also be able to select procedures based on hypotheses generated from behavioral assessment data; select behavior change procedures that are consistent with the principles of behavior and published research, when more than one procedure is indicated; select behavior change procedures based on competencies of the behavior analyst and other persons who will be carrying out the program; and when weakening behavior, develop a behavior replacement plan using the least restrictive interventions likely to be effective given the function of the behavior to be weakened.
